MassaSonic™ PulStar Series Ultrasonic Sensors are ruggedly designed transmitting modules that provide reliable continuous level or distance measurement of fluids, pastes, or solid bulk materials for application ranges from 4 inches (100 mm) to 18 feet (5.5 m).
Incorporating state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology and processing algorithms, all PulStar models provide precision non-contact measurement for applications such as factory automation, process control or tank level monitoring. The PulStar Series is the next generation improvement to Massa’s Legacy M-300 and M-320 product lines. PulStar Sensors are completely backward compatible with existing M-300/M-320 installations and software.
PulStar Sensors are RoHS compliant, IP68 rated, and available in two versions (see below).
The lower cost standard models in the PulStar Series are ideal if false echoes from sound reflecting structures between the sensor and the surface being measured are not encountered, and extended detection ranges are not required
PulStar Plus Sensors have additional features, including drop down menus that automatically change detection settings to ignore false echoes caused by stationary objects in the sound path, such as mounting tubes. They also contain a High Power Setting for extended detection range.
